The evidence is mounting that vaping and electronic cigarettes are having a hugely positive effect on society.
New recent studies have destroyed the myths, lies and general scaremongering tactics employed by various authorities and the tobacco industry to discourage people from moving to vaping and changing their lives for the better.
In the first study of its kind the International Journal of Environmental Research & Public Health has published its findings from a survey conducted with participation of 19,414 worldwide vapers.
It found that:
New Evidence Cannot Be Ignored
Dr. Peter Hajak of the the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies at Queen Mary University of London also conducted a study of 657 adults. In his study of tobacco smoking cessation he used controlled groups of vapers, smokers using patches and vapers using 0% nicotine as a placebo. While the scientists admit that more research in controlled environments is needed the results were very positive for e-cigarette use and smokers were more likely to quit and stay off traditional cigarettes whilst vaping.
His view is that “regulating e-cigarettes and leaving traditional cigarettes will result in tobacco cigarettes retaining their market monopoly, and we will never learn if e-cigarettes would replace traditional cigarettes if allowed to continue evolving and competing on even terms.”
Professor Robert West, a leading addiction expert in the UK, has also stated publicly that “if we (the UK) don’t embrace electronic cigarettes we are condemning people to death who otherwise would have lived.”
He adds, “It’s not dangerous to be near someone who is using an electronic cigarette, there is no evidence and very little reason to believe that it is going to renormalize smoking. So what is the problem?”
An insightful question indeed.
With doctors in Ireland anecdotally imploring smoking patients to switch to the safer electronic option, is it not time for the Department of Health to get on board and support the vaping revolution.
Regulation on standards would be welcomed:
But bear in mind that as Health Ministers there is a real chance to change the course of history for the better in relation to tobacco addiction. If Ireland fails to support the increasing use of electronic vaping devices can the people in power realistically claim to be looking after the health of the nation or are they simply too reliant on the tobacco tax revenues?

E-Cigarettes Can Help Break The Habit of a Lifetime
Conclusions in two recent studies have solidified the claims that electronic cigarettes can help smokers leave traditional cigarettes behind and offered further evidence that vaping is not a gateway into real cigarette smoking.
"Balanced and effective regulation of e-cigarettes will help manage the risks and maximize the potential for these products to replace smoking – greatly reducing smoking related disease that kills nearly 80,000 people in England every year.” Prof K Fenton
